around. this is newt gingrich. >> i think it depends almost entirely on mitt personally. i debated him and most of them i did pretty well. the last two down to life and death and we were in florida and he was in danger of losing the nomination, he came in fired up decisive prepared, aggressive, energetic and to be honest i think he beat me both times. if he would be as direct as assertive, as firm with barack obama as he was with me in florida he'll win the debate going away and within three days the polls will change dramatically because he'll ha the case we cannot afford four more years of barack obama. >> so that first debate is next wednesday in denver and did you know that early voting has for the first time today voting in a swing state, iowa. guess who's there john king. iowa city, iowa. john, are you seeing many early voters where you are? >> reporter: we have seen quite a few of them brooke. we had a camera here in iowa city and des moines earlier today. i wouldn't say it's gangbusters but modest lineseople saying pretty good loins and if you look at the s
of republicans, newt gingrich, for example, saying, hey, mitt romney, get out there, pick a fight, and win it. jim acosta with me now from the romney campaign. the debate, of course, tomorrow night in denver, you, sir, are in littleton, colorado. should we take mitt romney at face value when he says this debate is not about me winning? >> reporter: well, brooke, i think this is all part of the debate expectations game that has been going on for several days now. i think you also sort of heard mitt romney downplay some of the talk that has been going on since the new york times reported over the weekend that, you know, mitt romney is preparing all the zingers for the debate and you heard people saying maybe he's not preparing zingers. a lot of this is the head fake to the head fake to the head fake. of course, mitt romney and the president are both probably working on lines of attack that they'll deliver at this debate. that is sort of standard operating procedure. you saw that scott brown, elizabeth warren debate last night in massachusetts. this is what campaigns do. this is what candidates
him and claire mccaskill. she's the democratic incumbent. but gingrich yesterday out there in missouri with akin, he's about the only major republican politician who's been supporting him other than former arkansas governor mike huckaby who ran for the white house a few years ago. the family research council also backing akin. keep your eyes on this race, brooke. >> paul, thank you. a lot of talk on this one today, that controversial call last night. watching monday night football, nfl fans are saying probably yelling at the television that the refs were wrong. now the pressure is on the league to do something former nfl qb drew bledsoe weighs in next. ally bank. why they're always there to talk. i love you, james. don't you love me? i'm a robot. i know. i know you're a robot! but there's more in you than just circuits and wires! uhhh. (cries) a machine can't give you what a person can. that's why ally has knowledgeable people there for you, night and day. ally bank. your money needs an ally. >>> hi there. today on the help desk we're helping you prepare for retirement. helping me this
and growing lead. also, what it's like to debate mitt romney. newt gingrich knows and he'll tell us about that and more. and after a multimillion dollar makeover, what's supposed to be one of washington's most beautiful sites is an ugly eyesore. wolf blitzer's off today. i'm joe johns. you're in "the situation room."
is getting a little support even newt gingrich the other day came out and said you have to help this guy. it is a pblem for republica because, 28 and they had a shot in 2010 i should say, and they had a shot of gettinthe majority, buthe ndida whether delaware, colorado, nevada, and they got the minority status in t s a result. >> iell you what. there are a couple of republicans who were throwing him under the bus when the legitimate rape comments came out and as soon as they knew they were stuck with i am had, holy cow. >> the chairman of the republican party, the republican if they changes their minds and go ahead and work for him, that will be a problem. >> and people that threw him under the bus back then, many of them have come back and said this guy is great, behind him 100%. wolf, thank you. always love it when you're on my program and love it when you're on your program. situation room, 4:00 eastern. big tease for the how. thank you, wolf. we're jt days as well from the debate that wolf was just mentioning, the sqre off, the big fto-fac first presidential debate starts wednesday
, carol, i saw newt gingrich give advice to mitt romney. he said that these debates. his expert told him it's 85% visual, how you look, 10% how you say something, your tone, and 5%, only 5% what you actually say. that would certainly reinforce this likability prism. >> well, that 5%'s kind of depressing. >> it is. >> well, let me ask you this about likability. remember in 2008, obama had a problem with likability and he's turned that around. he's now the more likable candidate. there is a danger to him to appear unlikable in this debate if he gets too snippy or too condescending or too professorial. >> absolutely because he's coming from a position of authority or power. everyone expects him to win this debate, everyone, apparently except for governor chris christie. so he will have -- there is a danger of him coming in to this thing perhaps sounding overconfident. because even though he's in a better position, the country is still in a very tedious position, and so he can't come in as if everything's hunky dory. >> okay, and will, i'd like to ask you about this, that 47% saying and that
debates with when newt gingrich had beat him lining a pulp in the south carolina debates a few weeks before. so i think that could actually be an advantage for mitt romney. he seems to be good under pressure. but, you know, listen, both these guys have a lot of strengths and some weaknesses. the question is -- >> let's talk specific. >> the nastiness is time out for that. we know the base of both political parties are very enthusiastic. this is about appealing to those undecided moderates and independents and nasty is not cool. >> let's talk about -- let's talk about appealing to latino voters. there's a new poll out today. back in 2008 mccain had 31% of latino vote. that was not as good as george w. bush in 2004 he had 44% of latino vote. romney need at least a quarter to a third of latino vote toeshs competitive in states like colorado where the debate is and that kind of thing. real quickly because i want to get to donna on this issue. what does he need to do to appeal to latino voters? >> i think latino voters need to know more about mitt romney. they know very little. precious l
't a success to be your president? >> we heard what newt gingrich said, that governor romney should talk more about fracking and about what's really helping the economy in ohio. do you believe that mr. romney should talk more about those things? >> absolutely. because people have a misconception about fracking. in our area like we have six wells on our farm, water wells. everybody worries about their water. ours ranged from 135 to 175 feet deep. the deepest one i know in the area is 300. the fracking goes on over a mile down. and i'm not an expert on the oil business, but i can't believe something that's going on a mile down is going to affect us above. the second thing is all the chemicals that they worry about are generally household products that everybody has in their kitchen. they mix that with sand to hold the shale apart and that's all there is to it. it's not anything dangerous that i'm aware of. >> all right. jim long, thank you so much for joining us this morning. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >>> years after his presumed death, jimmy hoffa's legacy lives on. how the latest tip ha
akin staying in, we saw newt gingrich helping to campaign with him. might we see any outside money headed into the todd akin campaign? >> well, from the perspective of the national republican party, they're hedging their bets. they'll wait and see if it is close. sources i've talked to said they don't think it will be, but they're going to not close the door. but with regard to outside groups, one of the biggest ones, crossroads, karl rove's group, they insist they will not spend money there but there are other outside groups. one was backed by senator jim demint. they did a poll of their supporters online, and they all said that they believe that they should back todd akin and i think we have a shot of the website. so far they have raised $138,000 in a week online. so, you know, that's not going to win the race for todd akin, but it is more money than he had before and we'll see how much money they raise in the next month. >> that is missouri. let's talk maine. you and i have talked about senator olympia snowe, on this show, i want to say last week. she was talking about how -- ju
